About 40 Japanese commuters joined forces with railway staff to move a 70,550-pound train after a woman fell into the 8-inch gap between it and the platform.
They pushed the train so it was leaning back, allowing others to pull the woman free. The woman, in her mid-30s, had fallen to her waist and was not seriously injured, according to the AP.
